Driftwood is a detached cottage overlooking the garden, and has recently been renovated using natural stone and wood, in Breton style, and is furnished to a high standard. Downstairs we have three bedrooms - one double bedded room with a twin bedded room adjoining, and a separate twin bedded room. The modern bathroom has a shower, WC and basin. Upstairs is a spacious kitchen/lounge, full of character. The kitchen area has a dishwasher, full size cooker, microwave, fridge, and plenty of worktops and cupboards. There is a dining table for six. In the lounge area are a comfortable suite, coffee table, music centre, TV (with French channels) and DVD player. French doors open on to a large south-facing balcony overlooking the garden and beautiful countryside. On the wooden deck sit a large table with parasol and six chairs are for meals in the sun.
Our grounds cover about an acre. We have a large relaxing garden with lawns, flower beds, and a pond where our visitors are welcome to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside.
Driftwood is situated at Kergalet, a sleepy hamlet just outside Crozon and about six miles from Camaret-Sur-Mer. Our nearest village with bakers is Lanveoc about 1.5 miles, and the town of Crozon with supermarkets and shops, cafes, bars and restaurants is just two miles away. Slightly further afield is enchanting Camaret with numerous restaurants, bars and cafes. Camaret is also famous for its artists' quarter and fort and church on the breakwater.
The peninsula of Presqu'ile de Crozon measures 30 kms by 10 kms and is a national park. The scenery changes from towering cliffs at Point Espangnois to beautiful sandy beaches which stretch for miles. There are numerous delightful walks in forests & moors and there are 145kms of coastal footpath around the Presqu'ile to explore. The area is largely undiscovered as tourists tend to by-pass it on their way south.
We are 56 miles from Roscoff where the Plymouth ferry docks. There are at least two Brittany Ferries a day in summer and the crossings take about 6 hrs. Otherwise one can cross further east from Poole, Portsmouth or Dover and drive down to us on the very good fast French roads. St Malo is about 150 miles, Caen is about 250 miles and Cherbourg is about 260 miles.
You can now fly from City Airport, Birmingham, Southampton or Exeter to Brest and hire a vehicle for your holiday. The flight from the UK takes about 60 minutes, and Brest is about 30 miles from us. Prices start at about £34.
